Forum: GratefulDead Subject: The Jerry Lays Waste To All That is Within Earshot Jam - 2/7/69

Well thats what I would have called it.

I promised Cliff I would give this a listen and it was well worth it. The boys performed an early and late show at the Stanley that night along with the Airplane and VU (odd pairing but I would have liked to seen it). Here are my impressions of each set:

Early show: Dark Star> St. Stephen> The Eleven> Turn On Your Love Light

This is a well played set with a short but sweet DS opener. Worth a listen but not better than similar sequences (-death don't have no mercy) later in the month or at the Ark in April.

Late show: Cryptical Envelopment> Drums> The Other One> Cryptical Envelopment> Death Don't Have No Mercy, Alligator> Drums> Drummers' Chant> Jam> China Cat Jam> Jam> Caution (Do Not Stop On Tracks)> Feedback> And We Bid You Good Night


Clearly the boys were warmed up by the late show. Serious jamming here with a scorching CE>drums>TOO>CE opener which segues nicely into a powerful Death Don't. Alligator starts off the second part of the show which you can tell is going to be pretty heavy based on the sound right from the beginning of this tune. Following the drummers, a jam ensues that is divided into three parts here. The first part is just some hard jamming that Bobby then tries to turn into China Cat Sunflower and while the band obliges and plays along with him it is clear based on the heavy-handed approach this is never going to be anything other than a jam with a China theme. The jam then turns back to Alligator, but like China Cat it never really gets there and while referred to as a "primal alligator jam" I think my name for it is a much better description of the jam. Next comes a lightening quick Caution where everyone joins Jerry in trying to assure there are no survivors. This is followed by feedback (which is not really my favorite part of a 69 show, kind a like early space to me, i don't usually go back for seconds). Finally, in and attempt to heal the wounds of those gashed by the jams, a pleasant Bid You Goodnight to end the show.

Enjoy!

Yes, I searched for it (the "thread") but the search failed; I can attest to the fact that CLIFF posted about the beauty of this show sometime over the past year as I know I got ahold of it as a result.

Good show, and thanks for the reminder.

here was Cliff's post on this show, it was while i was still in lurker mode:

Arb and i discussed this at Chatzy, sometimes people need reminders of shows and others may not have seen Cliff's post as they had not found this place yet so i think its okay to repeat a mention of a show every now and again.

For the record I did not read this post or Dr. F's comments before i wrote mine.

Ha! Great job--I didn't even post a reply though I knew it happened...I are good. Well, okay, that sounds a little too self congratulatory. What the Hell. I can make amends in the New Year.

the above post is proof that those who ignore Cliff's suggestions are in complete denial about the power and strength of the band in these early years, which exude some serious and heavy jamming; nice post LBo, thanks for the tip

pretty hard to listen to a show from 87 after that, isn't it?

"...some serious and heavy jamming."

Thanks, I could not have said it any better!
